* XBOX LIVE GOES AFTER HACKERS
Microsoft might use its upcoming Xbox Live online gaming service to crack down on Xbox mods--hardware add-ons that let Xbox game consoles run pirated games. Although modding an Xbox requires soldering skills and, apparently, an electrical engineering degree, it's a popular pastime with Xbox digirati, thanks to the widespread availability of pirated game titles on the Internet. Microsoft hasn't made a final decision, but the company is now leaving open the possibility that it will scan Xboxes attached to Xbox Live and revoke online privileges to anyone who has a mod chip. Like Windows Product Activation (WPA), this feature probably won't win the company any friends, but can we really blame Microsoft for wanting to stop piracy?
